    Hi all, I was toying with the idea of painting my wheels. I really like the look of the all black wheels some of the bikes overseas have. I was looking for some suggestions on the best paint to use and should I have to strip any clearcoat off the brushed part of the wheels before painting?

    Thanks for your help.

    If we wernt so far away i would swap you wheels,just waiting for warm weekend and spare time so i can rub off the black edges and polish mine so they look like yours.Take Care Mate John

    Yeah that would be great. If it weren't for that big pond I would take you up on that offer. By the way are your wheels a matte finish or are they glossy.

    I have read on other websites where people have stripped the black off wheels and polished them. Good luck. They do look good that way, I just want something different and like the all black look.

    Get them powdercoated - it's the best way - much tougher than spray on paint.

    They are Satin finish half way between gloss and matt.

    DITTO what 'maxcruizer' said about getting them powdercoated, an excellent choice.
